Your Cell Phone Photo Could Be ART!

This just in from the Beall Center for Art + Technology at the University of California, Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts:

The public is invited to send photos taken on their cell phones so that they can be incorporated into Cell Tango, a large-scale work of art that is currently on view at the Beall Center for Art + Technology.

Those interested in participating should email their cell phone images to, along with two to five text tags or keywords (separated by spaces or commas) that describe each photo's visual.

A database will sort the photos by their tags and custom visualization software will retrieve the data, which then projects a cluster of images into an enormous display at the Beall Center's Main Gallery. The artwork is constantly changing and evolving, depending on the images contributed by participants, who can be anywhere in the world, as long as they are within reach of cellular transmission and reception.
